unvolumetric SCULPTURE - architecture
read the synopsis from Amazon Com

is a term coined by Aldo Aymonino and George Hascup. The publication contemporary public space - unvolumetric architecture by Aldo Aymonino and Valerio Paolo Mosco, published by SKIRA in 2006, shows my earthwork homage to El Lissizky in Lelystad The Netherlands on pages 266 and 267 of the book.

My sculpture has evolved from surfaces delineating space to space delineating my sculpture. In the beginning, when I made bronze sculptures, I was always bothered by the fact that the core was still inside of the sculpture. A bronze sculpture has to produce a sound when you tap it - like a bell. So I would make a hole in the surface to take the core material out and close it by welding afterwards. But soon this inside space started to have my increasing attention. The sculpture on the left does not have a closed inside space - its interior is its exterior. Its mass is merely a demarcation of space. This sculpture actually turned out to be a deconstruction of my earlier sculpture.
